Figured it could be mounted on the wall. Would save space and organize my tads rather than having cups all over the places.

I haven't, but I put one in my Amazon cart pending some feedback here.

That looks like a great option for tads.

Lol, glad I could help. Each of those drawers could hold about 23 fluid oz from my calculations. They make units with smaller drawers that would hold about 7 fluid oz too. Personally I subscribe to the rule of dilution is the solution to pollution when it comes to aquatics, so I want more volume.

Ok, so I got it in. The only problem is each of the little trays has a tiny hole in the back. So I'm gonna sanitize all of them, then go ahead and put a tiny dab of silicone over the hole in each one.

I guess what would bother me is the possibility that a froglet would morph and be up near the top and you would crush it pulling the drawer out. I have seen people use organization boxes though, the type that lay down on a surface and you can see through the top of the lid and the whole lid opens up at once.

I'm not planning on leaving them in there that long. I transfer to sterilite shoebox containers, tilted, with sphagnum when they are going to morph soon.
